The Los Angeles Clippers have a distinct advantage every time they take the court. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan can get above the rim in a way opponents can't defend, allowing for easy buckets.
When you go down the checklist of things you need to have in order to win a title, the Clippers are pretty much covered across the board.
Chris Paul gives them a superstar, and Blake Griffin gives them a co-star. The Clippers have a third option for points in Jamal Crawford, and they have depth and experience with Eric Bledsoe, Lamar Odom, Matt Barnes and Caron Butler.
This team isn't just a show. The Clippers rank third in the NBA in defensive efficiency, fourth in points given up and third in opponent field-goal percentage.
The only thing going against the Clippers is that they're young, but that didn't seem to stop the Thunder in 2012. With visible chemistry, the Clippers are a team to fear in the 2013 NBA playoffs.
